If you work in a home office, chances are you are responsible for purchasing and organizing stationery supplies yourself. You will not have an office manager to keep a stationery closet well-stocked, organized, and regularly replenished.
If so, you’re going to enjoy this project!
This stationery supply storage comes together in no time with the help of a zipper and hot glue. Personalize the container with a fashionable zipper or use your favorite colored-plastic bottle for a chic look.
You’ll need the following tools and materials to make a stationery supply storage.
- Cute Plastic Bottle
- Hot Glue
How to make a stationery supply storage
1. Measure an inch and a half (37 mm) from the base of the water bottle, and mark it with a pen. Use sharp scissors to cut away the bottom of the bottle. Do the same with another empty plastic bottle.
2. Select a zipper that wraps around the bottle comfortably. We found a seven-inch zipper that fits perfectly with an 18- or 20-ounce bottle. Secure the zipper to the inside of one bottle with hot glue. Create small lines of glue and press quickly while hot for best results.
3. Open the zipper, and attach the top just like you did the bottom.
Zip the container together, and you’re ready to store your stuff!
